Ingredients

  • 5 egg whites
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats, gluten-free if desired
  • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 1 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 Macintosh apple, peeled and grated or very finely diced
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • cooking spray, avocado oil or coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Combine egg whites, eggs, oats, cottage cheese, applesauce cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg in a blender and blend until completely creamy and smooth, about 1 minute on high. Add shredded apple and baking soda and pulse to combine.
  2. Heat a large griddle or skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Coat with cooking spray or brush lightly with avocado oil or coconut oil. Ladle ¼ cups-full of the batter onto hot griddle (it will spread out to 4-inch circles.) Let cook, undisturbed until browned on the bottom and the edges are slightly dry, 2 to 4 minutes. Carefully flip pancakes with a spatula and let cook on the other side until the center is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Cook the remaining batter in batches, reducing heat as necessary to prevent too much browning. Serve hot.
